Travellers Admiring Fuji - Surinomo Hara - Katsushika Hokusai - Japanese Woodcut Ukiyo-e Painting - Canvas Prints
Hokusai depicts the landscape in varying shades of blue, yellow, and green that, as in most of his prints, intensify the visual appeal of nature while they diverge from naturalistic description. Overall the palette (aside from some vivid blue) is pale, due not to fading but to an intentional choice of subdued hues. The woman is a surrogate for the viewer, her back to us (and thus facing the landscape as do we) as she looks in awed silence at the vast landscape. The human presence is contrasted with the natural by juxtaposing the rigid and regular shapes of human intervention (the rectilinear bridge) with the curving irregularity of the mountainous landscape.
